Plex is testing integration with the Apple TV app, as per TestFlight users who received the latest beta update. The Apple TV app offers quick access to favorite, recently played, and recommended content across various sources on a device. Which makes it easier to browse content.
Plex is an ad-supported streaming service that offers free movies and TV. The service can even be used to watch the news or to listen to podcasts. To use the service as a platform to watch live TV, users can connect an HD antenna and a tuner. If a hard drive is added, the service can also work as a DVR platform.
Plex testing TV app integration across iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV
Podcaster Will Sigmon recently discovered that Plex’s TestFlight beta released includes support for Apple TV app integration. Note that Sigmon said the content from his personal server was no showing up consistently on the app.
According to a Reddit user claiming to be a Plex employee, only on-demand content will be integrated into the TV app. A user’s personal content will not be accessible due to piracy concerns.
Since Plex’s TestFlight program is currently at full capacity, the integration cannot be accessed. When released, the Apple TV app will require version 7.14 of the Plex app or later. Since the app is currently in beta testing, we do not know the timeframe for a public release.
